4 + = died and gone to heaven.....and gluten free

I had all these pottery photos, but who gives a fork about that???? WE WANNA TALK EASY chocolate PEANUT butter cookies instead!
How about a peanut butter cookie with 4 ingredients....plus 2?  That is what we want!
I am noticing a) that I am a bit sweaty--I was sipping hot tea standing in front of a hot stove, and outside it was nearly 90, and in our house?  Hotter!  The kiln was on out back and b) some people say they are tired of the same old people taking their photo by stretching the arm out and up...but others have said I am a master of the technique.  The tricky part is getting the DOG in the shot...which is not tricky when baking cookies :)  recipe follows, because YOU LOVE CHOCOLATE and PEANUT BUTTER!


We have visitors with dairy allergies, like me, vegan visitors, and gluten free visitors.  This recipe uses an egg, which you know I avoid but use for some baking, but is awesomely gluten free, and the original recipe I saw claimed low calorie at 35 calories a cookie (HAHAHAHA! Right!) here it is from PBS and below is my version which is BETTER.

Gary's 4+ peanut butter cookies

preheat to 350, grease cookie sheet

Mix one cup peanut butter in a large bowl with one cup sugar, add one tsp baking soda and one egg, stir! Then gently stir in 1/2 cup of peanuts and a half cup of chocolate chips.  Spoon big balls onto the cookie sheet, about 15 or 16, bake for 8 minutes! Remove, let cool a minute, then transfer to wire cooling rack, yummo!
(notes--some people like to flatten peanut butter cookies and bake them longer, so as to be crisp...NO.  What I like is soft and chewy, which is what you get here :)

Who would say such a thing? Silly gooses, that's who. Never stop taking these pictures that way!

And ... I would buy the book too. (Referring to above comments.)
